Description

This workshop builds on the archive of Small Project for Comming Communities (https://www.comingcommunities.org/), an ongoing research, workshop and exhibition project on the topic of community acted out through the means of contemporary art practice of so-called Scores. Within the conference “Situated Knowledges” we want to engage in realizing scores from a situated knowledge of the cultural producer, to the realizers’ embodiedness in her own context. We want to engage in a discussion of multi-perceptiveness unfolding around a written context-sensitive score and its various and specific outcomes and realizations.

We see this project therefore as an activation of political awareness on many levels. To enact a score is for us a political form of thinking, one that is not related to representational power, but one of activation and reflection. It thrives to create empathy, cultural exchange and relations. Change is one thought away. Scores might help envision change.
